As Canada’s first private eating disorder treatment centre, Westwind has helped individuals heal from eating disorders since opening its doors in 1998. Whether you're from Canada, the U.S. or from across the ocean, Westwind is a supportive place to begin your recovery journey. Our clients value our unique treatment approach.  

We treat the full spectrum of eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, ARFID and orthorexia.  Not everyone’s experience with disordered eating fits a diagnosis, and you don’t require a diagnosis to participate in our programs.  If your experiences with food preoccupation or a self critical body image are negatively impacting your quality of life, the support at Westwind is for you.

“I have been 100% free of anorexia and bulimia for the past 8 years, and no doubt, will be free from them for the rest of my life.  I entered your centre as a self-loathing girl, sure of her ugliness and stupidity . . . the centre showed me that I had a whole life waiting for me, a life without self-hatred and self-destruction.  A life with promise and hope.”
